Autumn's End


rainbow lorikeet












The last few weeks have been unseasonably warm, a wonderful way to end autumn. Yesterday the younger four enjoyed an extended lunch time visit to a couple of local parks. Master T's AR.Drone was almost as colourful as our native parrots - the Rainbow Lorikeets

Warm sunshine, green grass and blue skies. We have so few deciduous trees that it was a treat to enjoy some autumn tones, to walk amongst the leaves and rediscover their crispy, crunchy sounds.

You really have some birds of paradise in the neighborhood. ( I don't mean the drone. I am afraid that that will cause a lot of trouble in the future). But in total still nice pic's for remembering the days.

It's always so disturbing to see fall leaves as we are just starting to have warm days! Beautiful pictures!

Liz said...

Lovely images and a great end to Autumn! One of my many aims on my recent trip to Melbourne was to capture some Autumn colours.
The weather has been so unusually warm.

Cynthia said...

Beautiful photos, full of color. The first one is my favorite. Can't imagine seeing such a bird in the wild.

You describe the sounds of Autumn so well with the crunching of those leaves underfoot.

Your Autumn must be something like our summer ;) So great to have a beautiful season like this. Enjoy the next season! I hope summer will be good to us. I'm amazed at how colourful birds just fly around freely in your country. Love your pictures.
